Birds on the move

The migrators are flowing through my yard. In the last week I’ve seen Magnolia Warblers, American Redstart, and today a female Golden-crowned Kinglet in the spruces. They say, “To find warblers in the fall, listen for the chickadee’s call,” and that’s true. Sadly, “If you want to see the warblers fly, expect mosquitos to suck you dry” is even more so.

The last hummingbirds have departed, I guess. The feeders are still out but these were the last, on Friday. One of them was the most domineering hummer I’ve ever soon. All summer the males chase off rivals from the feeders but this little lady didn’t want anyone else of any species in Her Tree. She buzzed at Hairy Woodpeckers and Blue Jays, and even drove off a Red-bellied Woodpecker.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Travel safely, my friends. May you find flowers and feeders on your way.
